Turn any nature walk into a hunt for treasure with this toddler craft!
As we headed off on a nature trail through a meadow, I wrapped a length of masking tape around Veronika’s sleeve, sticky side out. While we walked, I started adding small flower petals and leaves to the bracelet, and remarked how beautiful the items were.
She very quickly got the idea and soon started gathering finds of her own, which I helped her attach to her “bracelet”.
Big brother Travis thought it looked so fun that he wanted an armband of his own to decorate.
And he was a big helper adding finds to his sister’s arm!
The activity led to beautiful moments on our walk, like pausing by the strands from a milkweed pod, which looked like silk on her bracelet.
Once home, I cut the masking tape from her sleeve and we mounted it on the wall as a gorgeous memento.
